AN animal sanctuary held their first and very successful ladies fashion show and pop up shop last Saturday (April 7) in Stock
Remus Horse Sanctuary which is based in Ingatestone, held the show at Stock Village Hall and were thrilled when over 100 ladies and a couple of men turned up to buy some of the clothes on offer and raise money for the sanctuary.
The clothes which were brought down by a company in Manchester were the latest fashion items from the high street but at 50 per cent off or more.
They also held a charity raffle which raised further funds. Sue Burton who runs the sanctuary said: “It was a great event and I was thrilled to see so many people turn out for the event and supporting the work of the sanctuary at the same time.”
Recently they recused a foal that was dumped in a farmer’s field in Ingatestone. The foal was very scared and wouldn’t go near any humans that were trying to catch him.
Sue said about the foal:“We are delighted to say that this dear little fella is now safe at Remus. He was dumped behind Buttsbury Church a couple of weeks ago and was roaming loose with no fencing between him and the busy road and the heavily swollen river.
“Because he is so feral, as are so many who are dumped now we had to bring in some experts to travel and dart him early this morning.
“When we found him he was terrified, skinny, crawling with lice and infested with worms but such a sweetie and is now getting healthier by the day. We are so pleased that we were able to save him before he became another statistic.”
